Range Rover At 2017 LA Auto Show
Land Rover have a strong showing at the 2017 LA Auto Show, debuting the new Range Rover SVAutobiography and other refreshed models.
There is little doubt that SUVs are generating an ever-growing amount of consumer interest, but if there was, walking the show floor at Los Angeles Auto Show would put minds to ease. SUVs are the main attraction at this show, and Land Rover have managed to stand out from the heard, debuting their Range Rover SVAutobiography whilst showing off the 2018 facelift models.
2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography:
Land Rover revealed a substantial upgrade to their luxury flagship at the show, with the 2018 Range Rover SVAutobiography model. The opulent SUV benefits from the same refinements in design that the traditional 2018 Range Rover received - with a modified front and rear bumper making for a more exquisite sense of style.
The more vast improvements are made in the interior of the vehicle however, with an interior that is truly first class. The long wheelbase vehicle allows for additional leg room, whilst plenty of other concessions are made for rear passengers. Two personal infotainment systems are offered, whilst passengers have their own controls on a centre console for climate control.
Land Rover also released specification and pricing information, with several powertrain options. An entry-level 4.4 litre V8 diesel engine develops 335bhp with list prices starting from £167,850. Other options include a plug-in hybrid powertrain and a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 with 557bhp.
2018 Range Rover Sport:
Also on the Los Angeles Auto Show floor was the face-lifted 2018 Range Rover Sport. This was first unveiled at the end of October, at the Dubai International Motor Show. It featured some subtle changes that make a much greater overall impression. The exterior benefits from new LED headlamps that are similar to the stylish Range Rover Velar model. The front bumper has also been refreshed making for a more minimal and handsome look whilst the back receives sleeker tail light and turn signals.
The interior also benefits from improvements with new high-grade material used for seats, further storage options and smart ambient lighting. Behind the steering wheel is an all-new digital instrument panel. 10-inch screens on the front seats have also been added, for rear passengers entertainment systems.
The entry-level for the Range Rover Sport is a 2.0 SD4 engine producing 237bhp with a list price from £61,315. For the first time there is a hybrid option in the P400e which starts from £70,800. Top of the range is a performance SVR model from £99,680. The new model is expected to be available to lease from the start of 2018.
